As… stimulating… as that sounds, I will probably never play such a singleton. For one thing, I still have yet to get past the playable demo portions of A4 (despite owning the full version for over a year now). Second, and more importantly, nothing about getting slaughtered in a game until I am forced to swear uncontrollably and punch walls sounds fun to me at all.

Someone's been spending too much time with UBB. :P

ResEdit (IMO, a far superior program to the latter) only runs on Classic, sadly. ResFool doesn't show the image unless you open it, but I dealt with that for about a week before discovering the glory that is Graphic Adjuster. Now all I need ResFool for is custom SFX, which should be used sparingly anyway, as the feature is only compatible with Mac.

Oh, that's easy. Photoshop as a resize feature that works pretty well… auto-scale, too. Very useful for all Blades graphics design.

A really helpful spell to know is Repel Spirit. I have my mage/priest and my paladin that both know it.

I pretty much never use archers. For some reason I'm paranoid about running out of arrows when I need them most. Same reason I never use potions.

I believe it's possible with Basilisk II, at least with the older systems (not sure about OSX), but I'm not sure how that'd be done. I'm still working on getting Classic to run on OSX. What can I say; since I still have OS9 on the other computer, it's not a high priority for me.

Urgh. I hate that battle. It's one of those ones where if you come in unprepared (at least for me) you're completely screwed, but if you go in knowing what's coming it's pretty easy.

Alright, I have a question now, regarding the variable's data type. You both mentioned short, but I've seen short and int used interchangeably (I think). Is there a difference between the uses of the two?

I don't recall anything like that happening in MA (though it has been a while since I played it). I think I would benefit a lot from doing a lot of hardcore experimentation with BoA's capabilities, now that I have some understanding of the code.

Ngh. Don't remind me of that sort of thing. I still can't use my original PDN, because apparently it now belongs to someone else. ('Someone else' is most likely me, but you know UBB) Just gotta get used to the stupid period on the end of my name. -_-

I've thought of situations where you can, say, start off the scenario with the call to separate one member, play the scenario, then give them the party back at the end. I don't remember what the call is or where it can be used at present, though. Could you drop it in the scenario script, or would it have to be "stepped on"?

Xel, those glasses really bring out your eyes! And your laugh at around 1:12 is simply adorable.

Otherwise, though, I found that clip tame, uninspired, and predictable. The last 30 seconds could've been cut off without making any difference at all - it's almost as if the director was just learning how to zoom, and the fact that the muffins were all the same, but with things pushed into them sucked. The plot made the weather report seem gripping, and the dwarf dude "Johnny", I'm guessing, won't be on any award shortlists.

Nah, pretty sure Xel didn't make this one. Otherwise his/her PDN would probably be Kelly.

Totally agree with you about the video though. Starts off amusing, then it drags on too long.

Don't agree about the muffins, though. Muffins are muffins. English muffins are something different altogether. :P
